About The Lighthouse Soup Kitchen and Shelter

Walk with us on February 22nd!


The Lighthouse is a shining light in our community! Families and individuals in Orillia go without proper food and shelter every day, for a variety of different reasons. At The Lighthouse we offer meals, a shelter for men, as well as partnering with other organizations to provide support services such as mental health, addictions counselling, housing resources, and support for those in need.


Our community meal program serves lunch to 50-75 people every day for anyone who needs a meal. Men, women, children, youth and families… Everyone is welcome!


The shelter has 14 beds for men who have no place of their own to stay. We provide three meals a day, a comfortable bed and community resources for housing, employment and addictions counselling as well as spiritual care and wrap around support.
